Abstract : Sealab II demonstrated that: The concept of ocean-floor habitation to accomplish a wide range of salvage and scientific tasks is compatible with man's ability to perform useful work at these depths; No significant short-time physiological changes occur which resulted in deterioration of the aquanauts physical condition; There is a degradation of human performance which increases with the complexity of the task being accomplished.
